The Little Jetties
The Little Jetties is a very popular spot for kayakers and those fishing from the shore. Known locally as The Little Jetties, this spots actual name was changed to Helen Cooper Floyd Park back in 1999. There is a fishing pier here, but it is rather small and can get crowded. Most people find a spot on the rocks or somewhere on the shoreline.

The redfish in the shallows are really doing good. Catches of 10 to 28 slot-sized fish on each trip are making news. Remember, the new bag limit for Florida redfish started February 1st is 2 redfish per person per day, 8 per boat maximum, (so if there is 5 of you then you on board a boat you cannot keep over 8). No more closed season on spotted sea trout and the limit has been raised to 6 per person per day, same slot size as before. Reds in the shallows during the calm wind days are showing themselves everywhere.
